Harpoon Chocolate Stout

12 February 2011

On my weekly pilgrimage to Harpoon Brewery in Southie this afternoon, I had the immense pleasure of getting to sample this delicious brew on tap. I bought a growler’s worth, in fact.

Very, very dark brown color–almost black
Smells like chocolate, maybe even a little mocha-y
Tastes like chocolate milk in beer form, with a little bit of coffee and nuttiness from the malt
Drinks very smooth, almost sultry

This is a stout. Period. If you don’t like stout, you wouldn’t like this. It also has chocolate in it. If you don’t like chocolate-flavored beers, you wouldn’t like this, either. I wouldn’t be able to drink this all the time, but as a seasonal, it’s perfect.
